Sewards End win the 2017 League Cup

Sewards End win the League Cup for the first time in an exciting game against Haverhill 2.

Batting 1st Sewards End got of to a flyer with David Foster top scoring with 50, Jamie King (33) and Tom Price (38) backing him up to post 152 for 6 from 20. Haverhill’s Liam Botten pulled the game back with 5-33 at a time when they could well of been chasing a much higher total.

The Haverhill innings got of to a slow but composed start with Mick Franks making 51. Liam Botten came in with the situation getting desperate and turned it round with a quick 27 only to see his side come just short of the required total after a superb last over from Johny Hancock, taking 2 wickets for 6 runs, including the dangerous Botten, with Haverhill needing 13 to win.

Liam’s efforts saw him awarded with the man of the match and receive the Highpoint shield.
